When it comes to rumors, Jay-Z is no stranger. His relationship with Beyonce has been all over the news for well over a decade. Initial rumors were about the two possibly dating. After revealing their relationship, rumors went on about the two getting married. Once the couple wed, rumors about the two having a child persisted.
Jay-Z and Beyonce started the New Year with the announcement of the birth of their first child. Immediately, Jay-Z recorded a song, dedicated to the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. Even after the marriage and now the birth of the first child of Jay-Z and Beyonce, more rumors were created. Yesterday, there were rumors of Jay-Z writing a poem, where he said he would no longer use the “b-word.”
Throughout his career, Jay-Z has become known for his lyrics, which many would call offensive. In 2004, he made waves when he decided to release his single, “99 Problems.” The song was popular for its chorus, “I got 99 problems and a bitch ain’t one.” However, when the song was released to radio, it was edited.
When news hit about Jay-Z no longer using the “b-word,” every outlet who reported the news brought up the “99 Problems” single. During the grand re-opening of the 40/40 Club, Jay-Z discussed the rumors about the poem and the story surrounding it. Jay-Z said the poem and the story are both fake. The dedication song, “Glory,” remains the only release from Jay-Z about his child.
